Where can our lights be positioned in a bathroom?

Installing new lights into a bathroom can seem a daunting experience after talking with your electrician! We are able to tell you all the information you need to be able to install the lights you want with confidence. 

Bathroom lighting fixtures


Lights that are designed to be installed within a shower enclosure or beside the bath have to be made in a particular way to protect them from excess water. Our lights are designed to be installed as feature lights and so do not require the IP rating for bathrooms. 


Our lights are suitable for bathrooms when located outside of zones 0, 1 and 2. What does this mean? The diagram below from www.betterbathrooms.com explains.

bathroom lighting zones


Our wall lights are most often installed in bathrooms either side of the sink or vanity unit and so we have included some examples from our customers to help you visualise where you could position them.

Our symmetrical wall lights are often positioned either side of a vanity unit, they must just be at least 60cm away from the tap.
